Emille began her business in 2015 as a side hustle whilst she was a flight attendant, starting with one product that was made by hand. In its first year, they were stocked in Urban Outfitters in the U.S as well as sponsoring major events such as Miami Swim Week and New York Fashion Week.

By 2018, Emille transitioned from a side hustle to a full-time entrepreneur. The product range had grown to 4 and she started to turn over 5 to 6 figures a month.

Fast forward to today, Boracay Skin has grown into a 7 figure business, has been featured in media such as Vogue and Marie Claire and sold to over 90 countries. Emille has held fundraisers during Breast Cancer Awareness Month donating over $2,000 to Breast Cancer Network Australia from the sales of her Rose Gold Shimmering Body Oil.

Emille has been featured in Daily Mail and Ticker TV, talking about her entrepreneurial journey as well as giving her expert opinions on eCommerce and beauty. Emille was a finalist in the Business News Australia Young Entrepreneur Awards in 2020.
